The Beauty Of Life

The beauty of life to live, laugh and learn.
Memories of my childhood years,
the good things were kept, the bad things were burned.
I'd come home with skinned knees.
My mother would scold me but help heal me.
My sisters, my partners in crime
helped me grow from time to time.
My brothers, my protectors who taught me how to be a survivor,
to not let anyone put me down.
My father who tried to always be around,
worked extremely hard to provide
and shelter us from harm,
taught me respect and to always strive for the best in life,
told me to shoot for the moon and not the stars.
My mother, taught me how to care and love others,
to give and to share the love I've always had.
For I am the most fortunate to receive love
from seven sisters and two brothers
with these memories of my childhood years,
I remember the beauty of life to live, laugh, and learn.
